7. Jaguar XJ 3.0 V6 diesel Luxury LWB

Price £65,400 Target Price £54,952 30k/3yr residual value £18,800 price drop £46,600 retained value 28.7%

Jaguar's take on the luxury saloon is great to drive, with excellent handling and a punchy range of engines. Interior quality is only so-so, though, and headroom is poor for rear passengers.

Hyundai i40

Price £21,895 Target Price £19,639 30k/3yr residual value £6150 price drop £15,745 retained value 28.1%

If you're looking for a spacious estate, then the 308 SW is a compelling choice, especially since it throws a range of frugal engines and a smart interior into the mix too.

5. Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer 1.6 CDTi 136 Auto SRi

Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer

Price £26,735 Target Price £21,473 30k/3yr residual value £7475 price drop £19,260 retained value 28%

This estate version of the Astra family hatchback is spacious inside, and if you go for a diesel version is competitive for company car buyers. A Skoda Octavia Estate is even more practical, though.
